3000 miles? To each their own, but that's too soon. 5k maybe.

Oil - Mobil 1 synthetic is what's in there now. Keep using it.

SAAB Turbo oil 0-30 or Mobil 1 0-40 or any full synthetic oil that have GM-LL-A025 spec. 0-30 or 0-40


When to change is uptp you but you have to reset the SID. SAAB says change the oil when the SID says so.

Gin, it came in the Car, read the manual. Check the SC FAQ, Search. Even ask your Dealer.

Some of the Mods & Admin must be going Nuts...The Ale must be taking effect, but the next Q I see in this forum might be....I just Bought a Saab, it has four tires, do they all need Air?

There needs to be at the Top of this Forum in a Big Font....READ THIS FIRST.
